Have you forgotten IRCTC User ID for Online Booking?

Sometimes it happens that a user forgets the username or user ID used in IRCTC for login. We will show here how to get your IRCTC ID. Many people don't know how to recover their ID if they don't remember it. But solution exists.

Just read till end carefully.


Note that we are not talking here about forgotten password, but we are talking about ID. Resetting forgotten password is easy as already explained in how to reset forgot irctc password.

But can we do the same when we forget the ID?



The problem looks simple at first look, but believe us that solution is not as easy as it might seem. Many people try to send email to care@irctc.co.in but they get message that your issue is forwarded and nothing happens. Many time the date at which we intend to take journey pass by and we are left hapless as we cannot book train tickets online without IRCTC user ID.

One solution that comes to mind is to create a new email and than register on IRCTC with that email. But problem again arises be…

Important Suggestion for IRCTC Users

Here are some very important suggestions to IRCTC users. These suggestions might look simple, but believe that if you follow them you'll reap benefits in future.



Let's start:
Keep your profile updated: Every time you login to IRCTC, make sure to edit and update your profile. In particular you should change/ update your mobile number. As you would know, your phone number is used to send alert messages, reset irctc password, and details about reservation (pnr, seat, coach number). Imagine if you don't update your profile, forget your password, or your old phone is not in use, you'll face problems in booking tickets.
Logout After Use: You should always logout after booking or cancelling tickets, or after doing any other task on https://www.irctc.co.in. This not only keeps your account secure from hackers but also help IRCTC to serve their users faster. This is very important. That's why you see IRCTC automatically logging you out after sometime.
Don't allow others t…
